Join the Barbie Super Squad & #BeSuper {#Giveaway}

Barbie #BeSuper

This is so exciting; for the first time in her 56-year history, Barbie is putting on a cape and mask and transforming into a modern-day superhero. 2015 is the year to #BeSuper, and Barbie is inviting Canadian girls to tap into their inner superhero by celebrating their own acts of “being super”.

#BESUPER PROGRAM

The #BeSuper program is an online campaign for children; it helps them to realize that anything is possible. As part of the campaign, Barbie has released superhero-themed toys, a DVD, books and role play.

When you and your child visit www.BeSuper.com you can unleash your inner superhero! First, you can check out the trailer for Barbie in Princess Power; a super-cute movie that sees Barbie with superpowers. Of course, in true Barbie-style, she uses her powers for good; to make the world a better place.

We received a copy of the DVD to view ourselves and Little S says it’s not only one of her favourite Barbie movies, but one of her favourite movies overall! I love it because it teaches a great lessons and  inspires girls to discover their own inner superhero.

You can also create your own Barbie comic with the #BeSuper Comic Maker to really get your creative juices flowing. And perhaps my favourite part, your child can become part of the Super Squad. Your child will gain inspiration from the Super Squad Leaders and learn their story and how they have tapped in to their inner “sparkle”.

#BeSuper Comic Maker

Kids can complete daily missions, read and print the Super Squad Handbook and sign up to receive an Official Member Certificate. Your kids can save their Be Super Monthly Mission Badges and get free Barbie® in Princess Power movie tickets.

There is a lot to see and do on BeSuper.com so be sure to check it out!

BARBIE PRINCESS POWER SUPER SPARKLE DOLL

Barbie Princess Power Doll

Little S also received a Barbie Princess Power Super Sparkle Doll and she really loves her. Barbie comes with a mechanism, that with a click of a button, transforms her princess dress into a superhero cape; her princess crown becomes a mask and whoosh! Barbie is ready to make the world a better place.

Barbie I Can Be the Voice: Inspiring Our Daughters

icanbe

My role as a mother doubled when my bundle of joy came out a girl. Not only am I a mom to this sweet child, but I am also her first female role model, her first look at women’s roles in society and her first guide to navigating through this world as a girl.

This is a big responsibility, because let’s face it, I’m not perfect. Thankfully I don’t have to be. Teaching my daughter to learn from her mistakes, gain strength from her accomplishments and pursue her dreams are just a few of the ways that I can guide her to being the best she can be.

I think about my influences growing up as a girl and of course my mom comes to mind. I’m not sure how she did it because I guess I’ve never explicitly asked, but I do know that I turned out to be a confident, well-rounded and independent woman who doesn’t always  take no for an answer. And I know I have my mom to thank for this.

With my daughter, I try to show her that women can do anything. She’s seen me take on some nerve-racking feats, like going to the mayor’s office for an interview for a blog post or getting ready for a feature photo shoot. She watches me play soccer every Sunday during the summer and floor hockey in the fall. She knows there are no limits just because we’re girls.

She watches me do my makeup and shares that she wants to be as pretty as me. To this I reply that she is already beautiful and that make up only changes the way you look; it doesn’t make you prettier.

With every choice I make and every action I do, I’m thinking about my daughter and how it translates to her. This is a big job we have; mothers of daughters but with some thought and guidance we can teach our daughters to be all that they can be.

Celebrating and encouraging women is something that has always been close to my heart. It’s not that we’re better than men or that we have more to celebrate, it’s that we’re still working diligently at solidifying the message our sisters of the past worked so hard to send. We are women, hear us roar!

I Can Be The Voice is a new campaign and website that will help Moms with the task of raising their daughters so that they are smarter, stronger, happier, and more fulfilled.  Canadian Parenting Coach, Terry Carson will provide perspectives, wisdom, and experiences with visitors who, like us all, want to become better at parenting.

Think girl empowerment, encouragement for young girls to be their own best advocates and helping your daughter to realize the scope of her inner potential. This is what you’ll find at I Can Be The Voice.

Join other moms with daughters share your voice and speak your mind. It’s said that every time you find your own voice, you help a girl find hers. Visit the Barbie I Can Be website to get involved.

I CAN BE™ DAY

Tomorrow (October 27)  will be I Can Be Day, where select Canadian schools will get involved by having in-class curriculum encouraging young girls to think and learn about their future career aspirations. Also, some of Canada’s most inspirational women will demonstrate how today’s girls can dream and achieve anything they want to be. What an amazing and fantastic initiative.

Who was your role model or inspiration growing up? How do you encourage your daughter?
